This collaboration between ISHKAR and INDOI takes inspiration from the shared heritage found between Afghanistan and Pakistan, by revisiting traditional Afghani/Pakistani menswear and the use of Afghan-native Lapis Lazuli and Agate stones for the jewellery. Each piece in this capsule collection embodies ISHKAR and INDOI's shared commitment to fine craftsmanship. The clothes, are all handcrafted in the workshop of INDOI founder, Mallika Chaudhuri's aunt’s workshop in Karachi, Pakistan, while the jewellery is handmade in Kabul, Afghanistan by a small team of craftsmen.
This piece was produced by master artisans in Afghanistan. Since the Taliban took over in August 2021, we have removed all names and references of our partners for security reasons.
Some of our partners were able to leave Afghanistan. For those who remain, their craft is critical to sustain their livelihoods at a time when the country is in financial collapse and in the grip of a humanitarian disaster.
Every order we are able to make with our partners is more important now than ever before.
